Roy's Story - Ear Infections and Health

This patient experienced chiropractic having a positive impact on his life, after having 8 ear infections and 7 sets of tubes at 26 he found chiropractic and has since had no ear infections and less illnesses. Chiropractic is a form of alternative medicine that focuses on diagnosing and treating mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, particularly the spine. The primary method of treatment is spinal adjustments or manipulations to restore proper alignment and function of the spine.

Your personal experience with chiropractic care is valuable and serves as anecdotal evidence of its benefits. Many people have reported improvements in various health conditions, including reduced frequency of ear infections, improved immune function, and overall better quality of life after receiving chiropractic adjustments. While anecdotal evidence may not be considered scientifically conclusive, it can still be meaningful in illustrating individual experiences.

Chiropractors often promote a holistic approach to health and wellness, which may include providing education on nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle modifications. This emphasis on overall well-being aligns with your perspective on wellness being more than just treating symptoms when sick but striving for vitality and optimal health.

It’s understandable that you wish you had discovered chiropractic care earlier in life to potentially avoid some of the surgeries and health issues you experienced. However, it’s never too late to focus on wellness and make positive changes.

As for your son, it’s great that you are introducing him to chiropractic care from a young age. Starting early can potentially contribute to his overall health and well-being throughout his life. While individual experiences may vary, your observations regarding his improved immune system and interactions with others are significant to you and your family’s experience.

Chiropractic helps ear infections by adjusting the upper cervical part of the spine. This helps reduce pressure along the eustachian tubes and help the ears drain easier. After 3 years old the eustachian tube goes from being parallel to the group to more vertical. It is common that children under the age of 3 have more ear infections. Chiropractic has been shown to reduce the frequency of ear infections even in children younger than 3 years old.

Remember to continue working with qualified chiropractors who prioritize your health and well-being. They can provide appropriate care, guidance, and support based on your specific needs and goals.
